A Day at Imbabazi, a Center for Hope (Trip Description)
This Day trip takes you to visit Imbabazi a Center for Hope in Rwanda which was established by Rosamond Carr. In one of the quotations by Roz, she said;
“Rwanda is my home. Its beauty is my inspiration. Its struggles have been my struggles. Its grief has been my deepest sorrow. Its people are my strength and its children are my greatest joy.” -Rosamond Carr-
FULL DAY ITINERARY AT IMBABAZI, A CENTER FOR HOPE
Meet and greet your driver and transfer to Imbabazi Orphanage, West of Rwanda, via Musanze/Volcanoes area, with picturesque views of the land of thousand hills all along the way. Imbabazi Orphanage lies at the edge of Volcano massif and is a site to behold for travels to Rwanda who are seeking for ‘a beyond tourist attraction experience’, but rather for an intimate off -the-beaten encounter and appreciation of the legacy of some of the world’s most caring souls. The late founder; an American by the names of Rosamond Carr; commonly known as Roz, left her country and came to Africa in 1949, which eventually became her second home until she passed away back in 2016, after spending more than 50 years in Rwanda.
Come and learn more about Roz’s life, the orphanage set up right after the 1994 Genocide, her stories and friendship with Dian Fossey, see where scenes from ‘Gorillas in the Mist’ were filmed, stroll through local farmlands and English gardens while enjoying a vast majority of colorful flowers and birds to name but a few! Lunch and soft drinks will be served at the site. During your visit, you’ll as well have time to interact with children educated at the center and you are welcome to leave donations that help sustain work and legacy of Roz Carr.
Later after this beautiful day at Imbabazi, drive back to Kigali and end of the tour.
